Braefoot Bay, Fife

There is a very pleasant walk out to the point at Braefoot Bay between Aberdour and Dalgety Bay in Fife, Scotland which is part of the Fife Coastal Path. Starting from the entrance road to the Braefoot Bay Exxon-Shell Terminal there is a track heading west towards Dalgety Bay. A short distance along this track you turn left over the fields and head out to the point close to the edge of the Exxon-Shell Terminal.

In the woods close to the point you will find a number of old wartime pillboxes used to guard this strategic waterway towards Rosyth dockyard where many naval vessels were berthed.

At the point you get a wonderful panoramic view over the Firth of Forth and westwards towards the 3 bridges (Forth Bridge, Forth Road Bridge and the Queensferry Crossing). Following the wooded headland you can walk round to Dalgety Bay where you can visit the interesting St. Bridget’s Kirk.

There is a small pier at the point which is a popular place for local fishermen.

One thought on “Braefoot Bay, Fife

  1. Some ( well all of them really ! ) beautiful photos ! The Exxon-Shell facility wasn’t there when I left for Australia in 1972 , and Dalgety Bay was a military airfield only a few years prior ! I loved cycling past nearby Otterson Loch .. Also ,. nobody had thought of a ‘Fife Coastal Path’ back then !
